Watchguard SOHO Firewall Oversized GET Request DoS Vulnerability

SOHO Firewall is an appliance firewall by Watchguard Technologies Inc. designed for Small Office/Home Office users.

SOHO Firewall is susceptible to a trivial denial of service attack. Performing an overly long GET request to the web server component will cause SOHO Firewall to crash. Restarting the service is required in order to regain normal functionality. Watchguard has confirmed that this vulnerability could not be implemented to launch arbitrary code.

Successful exploitation of this vulnerability could assist in the development of further attacks due to the elimination of a firewall defense.
